Synthesizes Pagden's 20-year interest in the intellectual development of the Spanish overseas empire, covering the legacy of Aristotle, the image of the barbarian, and the assertion of authority and the fabrication of identity. One of the 16 essays is in Spanish, and another four in Italian; among the rest are discussions of the search for order by the School of Salamanca, cannibalism, and the creation of identity in colonial Spanish America from c.1520 to c.1830. A final paper summarizes the five centuries of anxiety since Columbus. Facsimiles of the original publications, 1975-92. Distributed by Ashgate. Annotation c.
